One hundred forty euthyroid individuals were divided into 2 groups: a high-TSH group (TSH between 2.0 and 5.5 mIU/L, n=67) and a low-TSH group (TSH between 0.3 and 2.0 mIU/L, n=73).

The researchers found that 62 patients had a TSH concentration >3.74 [micro]lU/mL (5.3 percent of patients <12 years and 6.2 percent of patients ≥12 years) and seven had a TSH concentration <0.36 [micro]lU/mL.
